My mom and dad are the best parents you could ask for. My father is very patient, smart and an amazing listener and gives excellent advice. Even with all of his work travel, he has always been present in my life. My mother has such a positive spirit. She is a very affectionate and giving person, always helping us to decide from right from wrong. I am truly blessed to have them in my life, not just as my parents, but also as my best friends. They have always been there for me, teaching me, guiding me, supporting me, even despite the distance that has separated us over the years. I am forever thankful for everything they have done for me. There isn't enough words to express how much I love them!
Jill and Shel have always been there for me. I am thankful for all their love and support through the years. Jill with her good nature and understanding touch. Shel with his loyalty and intelligence. The love they share for each other has taught me so much about what I want in my marriage with Tammy. I see how they support and balance each other in a way that makes their life extremely fulfilling. I love you guys so much.
Natalie is just a few years younger than me. She has a big heart and is always there for me. She is very funny and loving. She can always give people a good laugh when she does her funny voices and impersonations. She also gives herself a good laugh immitating my laugh. As normal, we have had our fair share of sister moments that through good and bad times have made our sister bond much stronger. A couple years ago, Natalie met the love her life; a great guy named Ricky. They are a wonderful couple and I am excited to have him as a brother. I love Natalie with all of my heart.
Diane will always be my "baby" sister...but she is becoming such a beautiful woman. It's so exciting to see her grow up before my eyes. Diane has always been mature beyond her years. Since she was three years old, she was telling me that we had to have our "woman to woman" talk, which I will never forget. She is a hard worker and very focused. I am proud of who she is. I couldn't ask for a better "baby" sister!
Growing up I admired my brother Chris. He was a fierce competitor on the tennis court and always has had a great sense of humor. During graduate school, when he met his wife Kate, I truly saw my brother in love. Kate is an intelligent woman, full of warmth and has calm presence. Chris has three beautiful children, who I adore. He is a wonderful brother who is always there to listen and guide me through life.
Dylan and Quinn are two years apart. They are so much fun to be around. Quite the adventurers, always playing and trying new things; they seem to be having a blast. Even when they have their normal brother disagreements, its endearing to see how protective and loving they are towards each other. They are the perfect companions whether it's at a sporting event or at the beach. We couldn't be happier for them to be a part of our wedding!
Zoe is a complete sweetheart. She is full of life and loves to play. She always entertains us with her games and laughter. She keeps her room organized and can impress you with her expansive vocabulary. She has quickly become Tammy's new best friend and drawing partner. We are delighted to have Zoe as our gorgeous flower girl.
I met Ari when I was in eighth grade through my brother who was friends with him at Friends Central. I immediately felt close to him because he was easy to talk with and had a good sense of humor. He is down to earth and not afraid to tell you how he really feels whether you want to hear it or not, which is the sign of a true friend. Through the years if I have something on my mind, I know I can call Ari and he will listen and then offer advice in a way that lets me know he really understands me. Even though he lives on the west coast, our friendship remains strong and I know if I ever need help he will be there for me.
I met Josh at Germantown Friends in eighth grade where we went through our own version of “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” These adventures are always fun to reminisce about as we get older. I feel very comfortable around Josh as we have so much history together. Josh currently lives in North Jersey and is a real estate lawyer. He likes to travel and is usually reading an interesting book. I'm really glad to have a near and dear friend be a part of our wedding and this new chapter in my life.
Michael and I have been close friends since 2004. Since the first day I met him, I knew he would be in my life. I could tell that he was very caring and always thinking of others…so it was no surprise that he was a social worker! Over the years, Michael has patiently listened to me talk about my joys and frustrations, always quick to lend insightful advice. Currently Michael is counselor at a mental facility in Philadelphia. He has been busy and focused in pursuing his doctorate degree in Psychology. We hope he finishes soon so we can see him more often! His new best friend is a puppy named Watson. It’s so much fun to go out with Mike because he is an expert on restaurants in the city. We are very excited to have Mike be a part of our wedding.
I have known Bianca since I was a little girl. I never call her Bianca, to me she will always be "my Biancis". :) She is the daughter of one of my moms really good friends. When I was younger, I used to look up to Biancis as a big sister and role model. Through the years we have become very close. She has a huge heart, and is a very loving woman. She is one of the sweetest people I know, and I feel so incredibly lucky to have her in my life. Even with the distance, she always has a way of making me feel loved and supported. She is my number one cheerleader. When I talk to her, she always makes me feel like I am right back at home. I feel that she understands me like on one else. Biancis now runs a jewerly store in Bellevue, Washington after living in Chicago for a few years. She is married to a wonderful man named Jimmy. They are the most loving adorable couple! I am thrilled to have Biancis be a part of our wedding day. I love her with all of my heart.
Yassya and I met on a college graphic design trip to New York. I was sitting a row behind her describing to my friend Michelle, the cultural differences between dating American men and men abroad. Yas overheard and was surprised that I had been raised in Bolivia. She then told me that she grew up in Moldova, Russia. We soon realized that we had similar views and values. Our relationship since that day has grown. Yas is like the older sister I never had. She is very protective, loyal and never afraid to speak her mind. She is a wonderful mother to a beautiful little angel whom I adore named Kaia. Greg, her husband, is a sweetheart and a wonderful father. From her early childhood, Yas dedicated herself to becoming a gifted classical pianist and now teaches children how to play. Recently, she has become a holistic health counselor and cooks wonders in the kitchen. I hope to learn some of her cooking secrets. I am very lucky to have such a wonderful friend in my life.
Cocktails, Dinner and Dancing to follow.
To our loving family,
We wanted to let all of you know how much we love you, and how much your unconditional love and support means to us. Thank you for always being there for us. To our parents, thank you for teaching us the meaning of love, and for helping guide us to be who we are today. Thank you for being an inspiration for our marriage. You have shown us strong foundations for what marriages should be built upon and you have inspired us with your love and commitment to family. We love you so much!
We would also like to thank our friends and family for sharing this momentous occasion with us. We feel very fortunate to be surrounded by such wonderful people, who have known us from various stages in our lives, and we will be so grateful to see everyone come together in one place to celebrate our marriage on July 9th, 2011. We can't wait!!!
Tammy and Erik
Tammy and I had awoken at the crack of dawn with a big moving day ahead of us. By the evening her apartment at the Sterling was almost cleared out and we exhaled with a feeling of exhaustion and satisfaction. I then asked Tammy as we walked to the bedroom if she forgot anything? She looked at me a little concerned and I gestured to her pillow. There sat her engagement ring and I got on one knee. I told her she was the most amazing woman in the world and I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. I said I was completely in love with her and would she be my wife? The tears started to come down her face and she confidently said, Yes!
"To love someone is something, but to be loved by the one you love is everything."
The first time we spoke on the phone the conversation flowed easily and time flew by. We both sensed there might be a connection and eagerly awaited to meet each other. We met on Sansom Street and walked to a restaurant called Noble. As we sat down, Tammy was a little nervous and I as usual was anxious to eat some food. The evening went by too fast and left us both excited to see each other again. On our second date, we held hands and started to feel like there was something developing between us. By our third date Tammy and I became inseparable. We just knew that we were lucky to find each other and not to take what we had for granted. Every day since then we have continued to understand each other more, communicate better, laugh a lot and watch our love grow deeper.
"All my dreams came true the day I met you."
Little did I know that the day I met Erik my life would change completely. I knew right away that I wanted him beside me. I was drawn to him, to his smile, his demeanor, the way he looked at me. Something felt different, in a good way, a way that I had never experienced before. He is very easy going and I enjoy spending my days and nights with him. We have so much fun spending our time together, doing everything and anything. Erik is the love of my life. I don't think I have ever met someone as kind as he is. He has the biggest heart and is always there for me. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful partner. He balances me, he teaches me, he makes me laugh, he gives me so much love. Now that I have met him I can't imagine a day without him. I love him with all of my heart and I am so excited to start this new chapter of my life with Erik right there next to me. I love you!
From the moment I spoke on the phone with Tammy I knew she was unique. She asked me if I made my bed every morning. She asked me which side of the bed I liked to sleep on. She did all this with a spirit, directness and passion for life which made me fall completely under her spell. On our first date I realized she was very determined, but in a charming, genuine way. Of course I was blown away by her beauty. She clearly was smart and had a sweetness that was very comforting. I knew that she was a special woman and someone who I did not want to be apart from. Tammy can make me laugh or just listen and support me. She simply has become my best friend and the person I want to spend the rest of my life with.
